Frequently asked questions
What exactly does 36paths do?
In ten words, we help you get a great finance job in Canada.
It is depressing that having paid tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in tuition fees, many bright university students, international students in particular, end up being unemployed, simply because no one has taught them useful skills needed to succeed in the increasingly competitive finance job market.
We created 36paths to change that. You will learn from experienced finance professionals everything you need to land the best offer possible, from figuring out your optimal career path and creating the perfect resume to effectively communicating with recruiters & hiring managers and nailing your upcoming interviews.
How is this better than other career consulting companies?
In three key ways:
1. We are exclusively focused on the finance industry in Canada, from Capital Markets and Commercial Banking to Corporate Finance and Risk Management. We are confident to say that no one in the world does this better than us.
2. Not only do we have years of experience in the Canadian finance industry, but we also know how the hiring process works inside and out. We made many mistakes and wasted lots of time during our job search and we are here to make sure you don't have to.
3. We teach you actionable finance job search strategies based on your unique profile. We don't believe in generic career advice you cannot act on. You will get hands-on coaching and apply lessons learnt right away, from the comfort of your home.
